I think an emotional roller coaster is inevitable with the process of buying or selling a home, which is even more of a reason to use someone like Steven who truly has your back. The decision to use him was based on trust and outstanding merit.

I was very nervous about the process but Steven always knows how to break it down when you ask questions or mention doubts, he makes sure things are clear and in your best interest. I think the key points are trustworthy and timely communication that set Steven and his team apart from any other agent out there.

As first time sellers, our experience was great! It was executed just about perfectly, despite being in the midst of a pandemic!

Father-son duo Steven and Nathan Padilla made us feel like family, always taking care of us!

They put a lot of work into selling our house. Steven gave it his undivided attention and was available to us any day, at any time!

We were extremely happy with the time frame in which out house sold, and we even broke the record in price for our area!

We confidently recommend Steven Padilla for your real estate needs!

I went threw 2 different agents before Steven . They where not professional and was only looking into me purchasing a house right away . When I met Steven he was completely the opposite. He sat with me and my wife and we talked about what I was looking into. He was super understanding and pacient with me you can tell his been doing his work for over 33 years. The process was so smooth and fast thanks to Steven . He made me feel like he was not my agent more like a friend and that is what I like more about him . He made sure all my questions where answered when ever I asked him something. All I can say is thank you Steven and his team I will seriously recommend all my family and friends to him and will work with him eventually in the future to get a bigger home . Best agent I have ever worked with

Steven Padilla's attention to detail and recognizing the needs of my mother did not go unnoticed! He allowed an extension on escrow closing to allow her time to move to her next residence.

Steven found us great contractors to do some quick fixes around the house to prepare it for sale. He helped explain everything we could expect from the selling process. We had the luck of dealing with a buyers agent that would not answer questions for days at a time, I was beginning to get frustrated. Steven calmed me down a few times and assured me everything would work out at the end, which it did. THANK YOU STEVEN!

When I met Steven, I was 19 years old. He asked me if I wanted to buy a house because the prices were really cheap. He guided me with the bank but I didn't have any credit. Now the plan was to open 2 lines of credit and in three months I would be ready. Sure enough I was in a house at the age of 20. We sold the house about 7 years later and I made a really good profit. Fast forward a few years later and we are ready to sell my mother's house, but it needs some TLC. Steven offered to help and loan us money to repair my mother's house to get TOP DOLLAR. Just as Steven recommended, we did the kitchen, landscape and interior paint. We got $$$ TOP DOLLAR $$$!!! We're very happy with Steven, not only for his real estate knowledge and experience but his willingness to financially help us to get the most money for my mother's house. Now he sold me another house in Compton that I plan to do an ADU... just like Steven recommended.

Steven Padilla was recommended to me by a friend who had a great experience buying her house using his services. I spent several months looking at houses with Steven. I made offers on a few homes, and my offers were accepted. Unfortunately two of the homes had issues that caused me to not get them. Steven did not pressure me at all to purchase the home anyway. He said it was important for me to find a home that made me happy, and I appreciated that. I finally got a house in Los Angeles, and I loved the house.

A couple years later I decided to sell the house, so I called Steven. Steven got right on the job. Me and him agreed on an asking price, and within a few weeks I had accepted an offer. The house was sold shortly ther after. I have not purchased the next home, but I will definitely use Steven when I decide to.

The short sale of my father's home went smoother than we had hoped. Having read horror stories of the length short sales take, we were ready to expect no news regarding the sale of the home for over 6 months. However, Steven Padilla and his team hit the floor running and immediately put the house up for sale and started working with the banks to help secure a short sale approval. A buyer was identified within a month and the short sale was approved soon thereafter. It seemed too good to be true, but it wasn't. Buyer identified, short sale approved, and my father's house was (short)sold within about 3-4 months. Steven Padilla and his team are definitely your go to's for your selling needs!

Couldn't ask for better communication, whether via email, text, or phone, Steven was always available and had a great demeanor when my father and I reached out.

I would highly recommend Steven Padilla. Having to sell my mother's home of 70 years was a delicate situation from the start but the house also had issues. Steven was there to guide us professionally through each and every one of these issues from start to finish in a smooth and efficient manner. His patience and confidence was relayed to us and kept us on track with no stress to us. He was always available to us morning and night and no question from us was too small. He had offers on the house within a week. Steven's negotiations and suggestions were so precise that we were very happy with our appraisal and the offers made on our house. One of the many most valuable qualifications Steven has is not only his amazing experience, incredible diligence and his ethics and honesty, but the understanding of not just the sale of your home but the area he is selling and what benefits the city has to offer. If you want an honest, hardworking, knowledgeable and diligent agent with great ethics that will get you top dollar for your home that would be Steven.

He has proven over and over again he knows is business, and is tempered with the right attitude. We have been extremely satisfied with the services he has provided to us, and again would highly recommend him.

Steven shared his experience and knowledge with the probate sale which help me get a better understanding of the process. Steven was also able to answer all of my questions and gave his honest opinion in different matters.

It was important me that the Broker be accessible and keep in touch. Steven was very good about that. The house was mine but there were three people on the Grant Deed and he kept in touch with all of us. I couldn't be more satisfied.

We had offers the first weekend that the house was for sale. The buyers dropped out when they found their credit had been hacked but Steven had another offer right away.

Couldn't have asked for anything more.

My husband and I had been casually looking for a small investment property. We found one we liked on Zillow and contacted the listing agent Steven Padilla. The property was listed as Probate sale so we thought we may not hear from anyone for few days. Within few hours Steven Padilla contacted us and offered to show us the property on the same day.

Our offer got accepted within 2 days. When I started having issues with my lender, Steven stepped in and worked diligently with my loan officer and helped us close the escrow on time.

After the closing, Steven Padilla helped us find a good tenant within 2 weeks and wrote up our lease. Steven has been with us throughout the process from the start to finish. He also taught us the Do's and Dont's as a landlord.

Steven's expertise, knowledge and dedication towards his profession sets him apart from the rest. His customer service surpassed beyond my expectation. No matter how busy he was, Steven always replied to my phone calls and text messages.

Steven is not just our family realtor but, also a very good friend. Call him for your real estate needs, promise you won't be disappointed.

After managing to obtain 8 offers on the sale of my home, Steven was able to find us the perfect replacement property for my wife and I. Steven managed to get an offer for our home in only 3 hours! After the weekend we had 8 offers in and were ready to accept the best offer.



As a loyal Bank of America customer (banking since 14 years old) it was natural for me to choose them for my home loan needs. Steven impressed me yet again after receiving poor and slow customer service from BofA. Steven personally joined me to a local banking center and was able to get me in front of a loan officer without an appointment.

After the meeting with the loan officer I find out that I pre-qualify for a $1.2 million loan with an interest rate at 3.25%! You would think any agent would try and influence me at this point to buy a million dollar home. Instead, Steven allowed my wife and I to choose what we wanted at the price point we desired. Steven immediately got to work and was able to find our dream home for $510,000.

We opened escrow with a non-contingent conventional loan and decided to use our savings; we planned to pay our savings back as soon as we sold our house.

At the 11th hour as my loan was closing, BofA throws a curve ball and holds my funding hostage until I sell my house! With my purchase agreement nearing expiration I was standing to lose my earnest money in which I offered $20,000.

At this point Steven's attention to detail, saved emails and endless conference calls with BofA allowed us to identify the errors made by the loan offer, home loan specialists and underwriters.

Steven went to war for us and won!

On June 16th we moved into our new home. Two weeks later the sale of our first home was complete and we were able to pay back our savings; a dream come true!

We are so lucky to have met such a knowledgeable and committed agent. Selling and buying a house at the same time is as crazy as it sounds. Steven is a blessing and we will always keep him close in the future.

If you are looking for someone that has your best interest in mind and that will fight endless battles for you then Steven is the right agent for you.

Finding the right agent is no easy task. With so much competition in a hot Los Angeles market, my wife and I cycled through so many interviews. We first met Steven in Lakewood CA after reading amazing online reviews. Steven has 29+ years of experience and was currently representing several clients.

From day one my wife and I knew that Steven was the perfect agent to represent us. After interviewing 15 agents we were ready to give up; meeting Steven at a home viewing in Lakewood put my wife and I at ease. We read so many great things about Steven, but then again you can find such awesome reviews online about anyone. We interviewed 15 people with exceptional reviews and neither one was the right fit. Steven is an agent that is committed in putting his customers first at all times. During the process of selling our home, Steven was able show and accurately price our home. On May 5th, Steven took pictures of my home at 3:30pm. At 5pm my home was online on the MLS. At 7pm of that same day we received our first offer $10,000 over asking price! By Tuesday May 10th we had 8 offers and on that same day my wife and I accepted an offer. This was unheard of! We immediately started to look for a replacement property and opened escrow on the sale of my home and opened escrow on the purchase of a replacement property within 2 days. That is correct! We had two escrows opened at the same time; Steven managed both flawlessly. Steven is the kind of agent that is ready to go to war for his clients; he is a shark! All the while, Steven never pressured us to bite off more than we could chew. Steven allowed us to make our own decisions and guided us with speed. Steven also has a large team of experts which results in accurate and fast results.

My wife and I are fortunate to have met Steven and highly recommend him; we will hire Steven in the near future.

Steven is practically a father figure to me. At age 20, I was two years out of high school and in the working field. I had bad credit and never even considered buying a house at such a young age. Steven when out of his way to educate me in fixing my credit, saving my money and getting me prepared to become a first time home buyer. Six months later he was selling me my first property. He was able to get me a property for a great price and gave me recommendations on how to proceed in managing my property. Fast forward 8 years later, Steven just recently listed my property and had it sold in less than two weeks. Steven was able to answer all my questions and guided me through this whole experience. He is very responsive, knowledgeable, trustworthy, professional and has exceeded all expectations. I recommend Steven for all your real estate needs. I'm looking forward to purchasing property in the near future and with no doubt I will be buying from Steven again.

where do I start Steven once again did a great job. this is the 2nd property that I have bought from Steven and just like on the first deal he made the purchase of this home so easy. He went out of his way several times meeting me at late hours if I had a question or just wanted to pick his brain when I had doughts in buying the property. He never pressured me but what I found out was the most important thing is that he gave me plenty of information to make the right decision. This is why I would definitely use him again and refer him to friends and family.

My family met Steven Padilla by chance while going to an open house. At that time my parents were looking to sell their home and buy another another one that they can move into. We consider ourselves very lucky to have met Steven that day.

First of all, my parents were very undecided at first and had begun the process of putting in an offer for a home, but after sometime they changed their mind and decided to go for a different home despite Steven having already put in work for the 1st home. What impressed me was that he was so patient with my parents and listened to their needs and never showed frustration with them. He cares very much about making sure his clients needs come first instead of his own.

As for the property that was purchased, there were plenty of other competing offers for the house, and despite my parent's offer being contingent on the sale of another home, Steven was able to use his experience and expertise to make our stand out above the rest. There were many issues that came up during the process that were out of our control, but Steven was very capable of handling anything that came his way. His years of experience was very evident from the beginning. He also has a very strong and knowledgeable team of specialists working with him. We were amazed how fast he was able to get answers for every one of our questions.

My family feels very lucky to have found and moved into a house that we love, and are grateful towards Steven Padilla for making this happen. We were very impressed with him and his team and would absolutely recommend him to anybody who is looking for an agent that they can trust.

My family and I met Steven Padilla and his son while at an Open House. At that time we still had not decided on choosing a real estate agent, but we immediately felt comfortable with them when we first met them.

We told them of our situation involving a house that we wanted to sell that was under a trust. Right away we could tell that Steven was very knowledgeable when it came to working with trusts and was very informative since we needed a lot of guidance. For example, the lawyer who did the trust didn't provide us with a tax ID number but Steven and his team identified that and worked diligently to get that for us.

What really impressed us was that not only was Steven knowledgeable and experienced, he had a team around him that was also very knowledgeable that had answers to all our questions. Steven always graciously provided us with answers to all our question and walked us through every step of the way. He was very pro-active the whole time and always kept us notified throughout the process.

As for the sale of the house, we had people showing interest in the house right away and accepted an offer within four days. The sale was concluded in two weeks.

My family and I feel that we were very fortunate to have Steven, his son, and his team work with us. Even after the sale, we still turn to him for questions and he is always happy to help. We definitely recommend his services to other people that are looking for a real estate agent.

We found Steven through the research that we did for the leading real estate agents in our area. Once we found out that Steven had sold a house within 4 hours in the immediate vicinity of our property, we knew that this was the professional we wanted working on our behalf. With that in mind, we had extremely high hopes for the deliverance of our expectations, and we can truly say that Steven surpassed every wish and desire.

Not only is Steven Padilla a great real estate agent with extensive knowledge, but he has also surrounded himself with the necessary relationships to successfully sell your house. This includes but is not limited to other agents, loan officers, escrow agents, and inspectors. His team is filled true professionalism who possess the most essential attributes to fulfill the sale of properties. Through our experience, Steven and his team immediately began marketing our property and did so in an effective and efficient manner, which culminated in great offers. Perhaps most importantly, is the fact that we were constantly able to get a hold of him and his team through various means of communication. Most of the time it was Steven initiating the communication with constant updates and quite frankly, good news. It must be said that the organization and professionalism of Steven and his team, from showing of the properties to the signing of documents, made the entire transaction burden free.

These attributes culminated in Steven bringing us a full price offer in less than 30 day. Truthfully, every promised and expectation was delivered upon. I would highly recommend Steven Padilla for any purchase or sale of your home. The work ethic, professionalism, experience and extensive knowledge is truly unparalleled, and I am confident that you will be as satisfied as we are when your transaction is complete.

He never pressured me and took the time to thoroughly explain things to me.
